Biz sector alarmed by series of hoax bomb threats | SunStar
Frank Carbon, chief executive officer of Metro Bacolod Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MBBCI), said Friday, February 24, that such incident is a "worrisome development" on the part of the local business sector.
Carbon, also the regional governor of the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Negros Island Region and Western Visayas, said the bomb threats have not yet sunk in to the consciousness of all sectors, but if it will continue for a considerable period, these will discourage businesses to thrive and expand. "We hope that the police should take these incidents very seriously," he said, adding that authorities should start briefing establishments on what to do when a threat is received.
Biz group tackles initial concerns with Bacolod police chief | Sun.Star
Frank Carbon, chief executive officer of the Metro Bacolod Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MBCCI), on Tuesday said their "informal" meeting with Senior Superintendent Jack Wanky is aimed at further building good relationship with the local police under the latter's leadership.
Carbon, also the regional governor of the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Western Visayas and Negros Island Region, pointed out that peace and order is vital in maintaining a business-enabling environment thus, a collaboration between them and the police is necessary. "We want to know him first, then probably we will appeal that we sit down together in a formal setting and give him an idea of what we want," he added. In today's meeting, Carbon said they will initially ask the new BCPO chief for more police visibility especially in "critical areas," including major streets. The business group will also ask for the BCPO's crime map as well as the current police-population ratio, Carbon said, adding that they will request for Wanky's augmentation plan if there is insufficiency. "We would also want to know how the business sector could help in improving the police operations in the city," he said. After which, we will talk about business seriously," Carbon said.
Biz leader: Robbery-killing a serious matter | Sun.Star
Frank Carbon, chief executive officer of Metro Bacolod Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MBCCI), on Tuesday said the business sector is worried over the "well-planned" crime perpetrated by a seemingly notorious suspect who carted away a substantial amount of P1 million.
Carbon added that it is alarming for businessmen that a lone assailant can claim two lives and injure three others. "The police in the city, province as well as in the region should take it as a serious matter and act immediately," he said. Carbon, the regional governor of the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Western Visayas and Negros Island Region, said the police should go out and tighten visibility measures especially during these holidays. He also pointed out that about 40 percent of the businesses in Bacolod are operating at night thus, there is a need for the police to reactivate their crime mapping operations to provide necessary forces in critical areas. "We will set a meeting with the city, provincial, and regional police to discuss security-related concerns," Carbon said, reiterating that the business sector is willing to provide any assistance to improve police operations. He also advised business establishments to hire additional security guards and to install closed-circuit television cameras that are functioning all the time.
Stronger ties with China seen to boost business sector in NegOcc | Sun.Star
Frank Carbon, regional governor of the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI) for Western Visayas and Negros Island Region (NIR), said that more than 50 percent of the investments in the province, particularly Bacolod City, are dominated by Filipino-Chinese businessmen.
Carbon said that Filipinos of Chinese origin players might be small in number, but in terms of peso value and scale of businesses, they comprise more than half of the local market especially in the retail sector. "Locally, Chinese are dominating over other foreign investors, including the Americans who have local partners," he said, adding that Duterte's announcement signals a direction that will further strengthen Filipino-Chinese community in the province. The President's intention of improving relationship with China is also seen to eventually lessen the wariness, and instead boost the confidence of Chinese investors, and will eventually encourage them to bring in more investments to the country, including Negros Occidental. Carbon, also the chief executive officer of Metro Bacolod Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MBCCI), said that loosening of ties with the US will not create a major problem to the province's business industry. He, however, said the impact of Duterte's "shift" of ally cannot be felt immediately. The business leader pointed out that both military and economic ties are bounded by agreements, contracts, and treaty alliances among others. "We cannot immediately detach ourselves from the US as some of these agreements should even still pass through Congress for ratification," Carbon said, adding that "we have yet to read carefully the President's pronouncement and wait for his economic cluster to interpret it." Carbon said the Philippines could have improved its relations to China in the past, but the country focused on its US and European Union allies for a long time. "The more friends the better, we should expand our ties with other countries also like Japan, Korea, and China," he added.

Frank Carbon, regional governor of Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI) in Negros Island Region and Western Visayas, yesterday said they have not monitored any disturbance among local establishments. Carbon said the number of passengers at major seaports and terminals as well as those of mall goers in the city for the past three days have remained steady. The police dismissed reports that Bacolod is a target, but stressed the importance for the public to maintain alertness and vigilance. Carbon, also the chief executive officer of Metro Bacolod Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MBCCI), said one of the purposes of terrorism, particularly through bombing, is to scare the public. Terrorist groups will then succeed if movement of the people, including business operations are paralyzed, he said. "Thus, we have to maintain our confidence in doing businesses in the province, especially in Bacolod City," Carbon said. Carbon, a fastcraft vessel operator in the city, said he has already tapped assistance from the local Maritime Command (Marcom) to train port personnel on spotting and reporting suspicious personalities and activities.
